Will.I.Am to produce song for NASA?

London: Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am has reportedly been approached by NASA (National Aeronautics Space Administration) to produce an exclusive track to be played during a future Mars mission.

The song by the Black Eyed Peas frontman would be broadcast back to mission control according to reports, reported a website.

"Will has a natural affiliation with NASA and even name checked them on his single `T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)`. He`s always keen to get involved in their projects and this was an opportunity he couldn`t turn down.

"NASA feel Will is the ideal figure to appeal to a mainstream audience and promote their technologies," a source said.

The tune is likely to be a bonus track on his upcoming album `willpower` and the deal would make history as it is believed to be the first of its kind.

The 37-year-old has previously worked with the US space agency to promote science to young people on micro-blogging website twitter.

The singer has also done a public service announcement on NASA`s TV channel. He will apparently begin work on the musical number once his television commitments on the BBC1 talent show have ended.
